I understand that Arlen Specter, Republican from Pennsylvania, is switching parties. He's now going to be Democrat. Good for him. I'm sure that he'll continue to serve the good people of Pennsylvania.
Good for us. The Congress now has a majority of Democratic members, the Senate has a supermajority that can kill debate and move their agenda. The White House is firmly in Democratic party hands. There is no reason why they can't do everything they want to do. No reason at all. It's a win-win for one-party government.
So, they either have to govern, or shut-the-hell-up. They've got all the members they need to do anything they might need to do. The Republicans can't obstruct any item of their agenda. It's all Democratic all the time. They own it.
It's going to be an interesting ride. Some of us are going to be taking notes.
